I love when I see my students doing cool inspirational things and this is definitely a cool inspirational thing. Last year I had two students contact me here at BobTeachesArt with a very special project in mind. They wanted to build a planner that would not only suit their needs but that they could bring to market to help others as well. I am pleased to announce that they have completed their project and have also launched a KickStarter campaign to support it.
When I first began working with Yolanda and Katherine their project seemed a long way off. Neither had much experience using Adobe software but they did not let that slow them down. They learned as they went and set up specialized tutoring sessions to help them overcome the obstacles they faced. It’s been an inspiration to see their progression. Starting with just an idea the two were able to follow this project through and now have an actual printed planner with several different designs ready for market. If that’s not cool what is?!
I feel like there is a great lesson to be learned here. All too often we come up with an idea then let our lack of knowledge or skill hold us back. We wind up talking ourselves out of completing our ideas by focusing more on the obstacles than on our goal. The good news is we are living in a time where there is a wealth of knowledge available to anyone with the determination to reach out and grab it. Do you have a dream? What project do you want to complete? What’s holding you back? What skills do you need to learn to make it happen?
